Caribbean Stir-Fried Shrimp
2 teaspoons vegetable oil, divided
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks in juice, drained, and patted dry
1 pound frozen, large shrimp, thawed, peeled and cleaned
1 clove garlic, minced
Pinch crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained
1/4 cup canned, diced mild green chilies
1 teaspoon soy sauce
3 cups hot cooked rice (optional)

 

Heat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add half the oil and heat until smoking, about 10 seconds. Add the onion and stir-fry until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Add the pineapple and stir fry gently until pineapple browns lightly, about 1 minute. Remove pineapple to a bowl and set aside.

Add remaining oil to the pan. Add shrimp and stir-fry until opaque, about 1 minute. Add garlic and red pepper, if desired, and stir fry for 10 seconds.

Add the tomatoes, chilies, and reserved pineapple and stir fry until heated through, about
1 minute. Stir in soy sauce and serve over rice, if desired.

Tip: We’ve kept the spiciness light (the canned chilies are mild) and the pinch of crushed pepper flakes is optional. If you want to add a little more heat, increase the pepper. Or for a completely family friendly version, eliminate the red pepper flakes, and your stir-fry will be as mild as a tropical breeze.
